Default C.C. Brown

I saw lots of tackles in this game from C.C. and his speed was evident. Just curious as to what ya'll thought.

Is he a lock on the team?

Is he the FS of the future, maybe 2 seasons from now?

Something else to ponder. If the opponent goes 5 wide, we can use Coleman on a receiver and put C.C. @ FS. If C.C. gets better and better as the season goes on, we could be very hard to pass on. Especially in the red zone.

I would be more surprised if he WASN'T our starting SS by the end of the season. This guy is player and has some definite speed.

It is.

Like the Raiders, the Texans kept out a lot of players because of injuries. With strong safety Glenn Earl still limited because of a separated shoulder, rookie C.C. Brown started.The Chronicle

C.C. Brown will probably be our starter at FS in a few years with coleman retiring or being released as glenn, sharper, and foreman were

C.C. will make the team as Earls backup no doubt. But I think he will only see action when Earl is out, like right now.

I believe he will make the team but i seriously doubt he pushes for Earl's starting position even next season .

He has shown to be Very solid against the run but suspect in pass defense , take the 70 yard TD by Doug Gabriel for example .... It was Browns blown coverage over the top that turned what should have been at worst a 18-25 yard play into a 70 yard TD . Yes Faggins got beat but he was expecting help over the top . He could be the steal of the draft (6th round) in a couple years .... but this isnt the time to judge .

C.C. Brown also got burned for a TD in the Raider Game that he should have stoped they had the pick of him getting blown away by Doug Gabriel that's not good if he's being beaten by a # 5 WR

Nobody got "burned" or "beaten". It was a busted coverage. Faggins expected help from Brown, and Brown blew the assignment.

I saw that the Chronicle has Brown named as a "new starter". Apparently, Capers really likes this guy. He keeps calling him impressive.

He was a lock before the first preseason game. It's evident that he is much more athletic than Earl. Two keys to a 3-4 defense are a dominant NT and SS (see New England and Pittsburgh). Earl was an upgrade over Eric Brown, but CC is a notch above Earl, athletically anyway.

CC Brown is a lock. Only question is how long before he starts.

I lthink he can be a real asset down the road, I just am not sure he is ready to start. beisdes that is a lot of pressure for a youngster to handle.

I thought Earl was considered a steal on this board because of his injury in college. He took the starting job last year and showed a ton of potential as a rookie. Could C.C. be Coleman's future replacement or does Earl need to play at an extremely high level?
